    Join the FOOD FIGHT for Proposition 37 – labeling of GM foods!

    Thanks for hosting!

  2. Thanks for hosting!

    We have been another round of GAPS Intro (as best we can) the last few days, so this post couldn’t be more timely. Detox baths are a great way to feel better no matter what ails you!

    Detox Baths: Recipes to Calm the Inner Beast and Whiny Children

  3. Thank you for hosting! This week I linked Managing Weight With Real Food, Cheesecloth Alternative, Stress/Pain Relief With Cleansing Bath Salts & No Mayo Chicken Salad.

  4. Hi Andrea:

    I’m sharing two posts from my archives: Dare To Be A Laundry Activist! (#91) and Uncle Sam Expects You To Raise Chickens! (#96). It’s great to see the number of your participants growing; I’m learning so much!

  5. Thanks so much for hosting! Have a great week! 🙂

  6. What conditioner recipe compliments this shampoo? I’d love to give it a try, but it doesn’t make sense to use the all natural shampoo and then finish up with store bought conditioner. I’ve never attempted to make shampoo or conditioner.


    • Hey Morgan! I use an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse. Simple put about 2 tablespoons of ACV in a bottle with about a cup of water. Shake it and then use a little as a rinse on your hair after you shampoo. I have short hair so I don’t need a lot, but even with long hair a little goes a long way. You may need to experiment with how much/little. It will balance out the pH of your hair. Easy!

  7. Hi Andrea, I made a small ooops! on my linky post today. #122 is supposed to say “Dehydrating Cherries.” This is what happens when one talks and types at the same time, lol!

  8. Thanks for hosting and for the feature!

    Today I’ve linked up ways to “greenify” your period. Tampons and pads are not only toxic, but they can have mold in them! Gross. I have some solutions to a better “monthly period” that’s cleaner, safer, and more economical.

  9. Thanks for hosting, Andrea.

    Today I linked up a post on DIY household and laundry cleaners –

    I know you already have a TON of great tips on this site, but I figure it can’t hurt to have more.

  10. happy wednesday lovelies! can you believe how quickly the week has gone??
